Yes, I would imagine mine has the cable slot because the usb and aux inputs are both inside the console.

^This, and is the best option. Makes it easy to place the phone where you want it, no cable pinched in the console lid, and much tidier.

That's the thing though -- On the Titanium the USB and AUX inputs are inside the console, as well, and there's no routing groove in the console at all.

It must be different on the S/SE. There's nothing like that at all on the Titanium...it's unfortunate.

I use one similar to this. And I use the plug from the back of the center console. My friend Christian picked it for me at Target.

Cigarette lighter and USB Plug

I have a titanium 5 door. Although there is not technically a groove on the console, the apple cord still has room to pass through the closed console if you ensure to put it either to the right- or left- most part of the opening where the latch mechanism is located. I just found this out by chance when I accidentally shut the console w/ my iPhone connected and sitting in the cup holder.
